“AEA services are huge for our family. We’d be confused, in a world of hurt without them. We wouldn’t have the knowledge or the skills to know the things we can do to easily incorporate into our day-to-day life. We get a lot more out of the sessions when we are at home in an environment that is comfortable for our family and our daughter. We’re so happy the AEA exists!”
